Veritas Petit Verdot 2017


Sold Out

The 2017 Vintage of Petit Verdot presents with a complex yet subtle bouquet of flowers and sage that encompass a core of dark blackberry, blackcurrant and plum that finishes with sweet tobacco. The wine is perfectly balanced with intense and concentrated fruit flavors the result of extended four week maceration on the skins before being gently pressed off in November of 2017 as it aged for 16 months in 50% new French oak and 20% One year French Oak barrels undergoing only three rackings in that time (one rack after ML, one for blending and one into tank to bottle). Petit Verdot in our experience rejoices in new French oak that adds to the complexity and integration of the smooth and assertive tannins that fill the palate lingering into the long and sumptuous finish.
